NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc., a leading provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, recently announced the launch of its new, fully commercial C Series displays, offering customers a slim profile and sleek design at an economical price point.
The new C Series includes three models — the 43″ C431, 50″ C501 and 55″ C551 — all of which have a depth of only 45mm. This slender profile allows for a lighter design as well as unobtrusive mounting. The optional thin-depth wall mount kit provides easier accessibility in situations where ADA compliance is of importance.
These models provide many commercial-grade features, including full bidirectional external control through both the LAN and RS232 interfaces to enable easier integration into control systems. They are rated for 24/7 usage and contain full metal mechanical structures to provide the ruggedness necessary for retail, education, restaurant and corporate signage. The C Series models have a wide range of connectivity interfaces including DisplayPort and HDMI located on the bottom and side of the display to allow for easy access. The models are also equipped with an integrated media player to allow for audio, video or image playback via USB or SD card to provide many avenues of displaying content. These models can also be installed in both landscape and portrait orientation and can also be tiled in an up to 10×10 matrix to create a video wall.
The C Series models are ideally suited as digital signage displays for informational and advertising purposes as well as presentation devices for smaller conference rooms or huddle spaces. The models have brightness of 400 cd/m2, full HD 1920×1080 resolution and anti-glare screens to deliver maximum visibility of the content being displayed. The NEC C Series displays can also be deployed with an optional IR touch overlay that allows users to easily turn each display into a touchscreen for wayfinding and other interactive uses.
The C Series models are covered by a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty and will start shipping by early December 2017.
PMA Research, the leading analyst firm covering the large format display market reports that sales of commercial-rated flat panel displays sold in October 2017 through the U.S. PC/IT and AV distributor channel were up 17% over last year.
